even if they didn't want to vote for him, they couldn't deny him. his record speaks for itself.

I don't think we need Sherdog or it's forums to validate what we already know. I don't care what they have to say when then like Matt any more then I care about what they think when they are trashing him..
Chuck, get the hell away from our bubble, would ya?

Yup. Love him or hate him, they can't deny the empirical FACT that Matt's the best champ ever.

Like I state to all Matt Hughes haters if your a real MMA fan you have to give Matt Hughes his props for being a tremendous fighter. If one can deny that they are obviously not true to themselves or MMA. Hate it or Love it Matt will always be a legend!!

You can tell that most of the voters know absolutely nothing about MMA. GSP at 3# after 2 successful defenses and 1 failed defense? He's a great fighter, no doubt about that, but he's nowhere near the greatest at this time. Matt Hughes #1, Royce Gracie #2, Anderson Silva #3 in my opinion.

On the 2nd note, you can tell that the majority, love him or not, respect what Matt did for the UFC and MMA in general. He definitely left the biggest mark of all champs in the UFC.

The number of defenses speaks for itself, but I think a big thing that makes Matt Hughes the GOAT, imo, is the manner/style in which he won. He was one of the first fighters to really incorporate proficiency in all aspects of the fight game (wrestling, gnp, BJJ, striking) into his arsenal - in a lot of ways, Matt's success brought about the emphasis on cross-training/knowledge that you need to be a least decent in all areas (and elite in some) to be a champion in the modern era.

0% (0 votes) - Pat Miletich

That's right, Matt has a higher percentage/vote count than 2nd, 3rd & 4th place combined!!!!!

EDIT: Can a mod sticky this? I feel like this is a huge moral victory!!
This isnt a reflection of Sodom the Forum, its a poll on the MAIN news site. Sherdog Forums are shyte, but Sherdog the news site...well its full of people who arent quite as thick

So its brilliant news...but it noway clears any sherdoggers on the forum
